people are like. >> what could possibly go wrong in eight years of george bush? >> my producer just coughed up a hairball. >>sorry. >>just be grateful current tv doesn't come in "smell-o-vision" >> oh come on! the sweatshirt is nice and all, but i could use a golden lasso. (vo)only on current tv. cenk off air>>> alright in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks! i think the number 1 thing than viewers like about the young turks is that were honest. they know that i'm not bsing them for some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know i'm going to be the first one to call them out. cenk on air>> what's unacceptable is how washington continues to screw cenk off air>>> i don't want the middle class taking the brunt of the spending cuts and all the different programs that wind up hurting the middle class. cenk on air>>> you got to go to the local level, the state level and we have to fight hard to make sure they can't buy our politics anymore. cenk off air>>> and they can question if i'm right about that. but i think the audi
of questions about george bush politicizing terror warnings, should we be asking those questions now? >> we don't have in the last four and a half years a lot of evidence of barack obama doing the same thing as bush and cheney. so we don't need to be spectacle of these warnings on those facts alone. >> david: most congressmen have spoken out in favor of this, but they don't know much necessarily about what the nsa is doing. there was a big story in the guardian, saying members are being rejected in trying to find out what is going on. so are lawmakers sort of saying stuff that they don't know what they are saying. >> lawmakers, as you know, david like to follow the pack and take the safest position, and the safest position is say let's trust these are bad guys, sure they want to get us. >> stephanie: let's turn to some of the fighting among the parties right now. last week rand paul and chris christie, they had a big fight. they knocked heads. this week mitch mcconnell fighting off his primary challenger. he has even created a website saying bailout bevin calling this challenge a probailout kin
that he's adopted a lot of dick cheney and george w. bush's approach in the war on terror. i will agree with rick on one point, and that is we do live in a post-benghazi world, especially when it comes to embassy protection. and there are a lot of families of people who were killed at benghazi that wish they'd gone on this sort of alert. so this is, this is, benghazi is the 800-pound elephant that nobody's speaking about on this matter. that's why so many embassies have been shut down. but i don't know that there would be a lot of people saying it's because of the tim duncan ti of barack obama but rather the mistakes made in benghazi. >> look, drone policy is one policy. what we've seen is an administration that has refused to confront radical islam, that embraced the muslim brotherhood in egypt and now you see the consequences of that and what's happened there. they have not been -- they won't even use the word "terror." they have withdrawn politically from the engagement and fight. yeah, sure, they're going after bad guys with drone programs, but that is not a comprehensive policy --
covered five presidents from jimmy carter to george w. bush. he mentored me, countless others. he was always smart and funny and courtly and wise. along the way he spent seven years at the "today" show news anchor desk. this morning bryant gumbel and jane pauley returned to talk about their dear friend. >> john was a gentleman was a capital "g." he was just gracious in every respect. just a professional warm man. >> he took me aside one day after the show and he said, he he says, jane, don't take this the wrong way, but does it ever amaze you that kirk douglas knows who you are? and i think a guy from kingsport, tennessee, he always pinched himself, what am i doing here? but, thank god he was. >> john was completely devoted to his wonderful family. his wife nancy, his three daughters, and his son-in-law, molly. carter also in the entertainment business and hope is a young aspiring journalist right here in our nbc news washington bureau. he was widely loved. he was aide mired by all who knew him. john palmer died at the age of 77. my insurance rates are probably gonna double. but,
me say, george bush kept a picture of people with the cards, he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >>
have claimed and therefore george bush could say don't pay into it, simply give each person the fund and they can invest on their pension. if you monetize your deferred compensation, that is a terrible idea. it further damages the devotee of people to have social and there is a link to having a social wage is that it dramatically is important for the society because then people start to see of objectively the interest is united. one of the great tracks to american history is rather than to countercyclical spending through the social expenditure, it is always been done through the military spending. you spend militarily through bringing the economy back to life. that was the whole post world war golden age etc we've so in that sense one has to confront this idea because it is easy to do the spending on the military because it is already a hari article society in the military and encampment that the more you begin to feel objectively or ties with other people are there you might be able to create a political movement where people subjectively then relate to the common agenda and i thin
feared nor respected. i'm not saying you go back to the george bush days and have wars that you can't win. but i am saying if president obama makes these statements, we're going to get those people who killed our people in benghazi and then does nothing about it. if president obama says there are real consequences to you, mr. putin, if you keep snowden and don't return him, and then we do nothing about it. if we tell iran there are real consequences coming to you if you continue your nuclear weapons program, and then we do nothing about it. at a certain point, leading from behind those guys stop looking back for orders, and they go their own way, and here we are. bill: you wonder if this extends beyond august. you have september 11th coming up in the first half of the next month and whether or not this stretches into that. kt, let's hope nothing happens. kt mcfarland on what we're seeing today. thank you. patti ann: new reports that a top u.s. diplomat met today with a jailed senior leader of egypt's muslim brotherhood. u.s. deputy secretary of state william burns apparently joining offic
. national security analyst juan zarate is with us. he served for president george bush. good morning. we know it's both specific and vague. we know it sounds like the chatter before 9/11. what is the president getting? what kind of information and what kind of options does he have? >> the president first and foremost will want to know what information we've gotten overnight and over the weekend. intelligence officials and sources are pulsing the system. getting not only their sources but friends and alleyi'llallyies, try to gather as much information. my sources tell me there isn't that much that's new. the president may hear some updates but maybe not that much new. he'll get some updates. >> what's interesting is they say the operatives already dispatched. >> that's right. this is reminiscent the plot in 2010. you recall there was a plot to attack europe sites. people were worried about mumbai-style attacks coming from the al qaeda core. it never materialized. but officials were worried that they actually had operatives in place. that's great concern here. >> this
served as the chief economist of the council of economic advisers under president george bush. manuel pastor is the professor of sociology in american studies and ethnicity at the university of southern california. he's also the director of their program on environmental and region aleck bity -- regional equity, and for our purposes today most importantly, codirector of the center for the study of immigrant integration. and he's published a couple of reports recently that he'll bring to light today about the importance of citizenship. jose antonio vargas is a pulitzer prize-winning journalist, film maker and the founder of define american, a campaign that seeks to elevate the immigration conversation. he is another profile in courage. in 2011 in "the new york times" magazine, he publicly revealed himself as undocumented and shared his life story of being raised by his grandparents in the u.s. from the age of 12 when he left his birthplace in the philippines. he has since become a national immigrants' rights advocate and leader for comprehensive immigration reform activist including th
was hit harder than at any time since pearl harbor. but without blaming george w. bush for failing to act sufficiently to that warning an of august 6th, 2001, should anyone blame this president and his people for acting in time this time? joining me tonight from cairo, nbc news chief foreign correspondent richard engel and with us from new york, msnbc terrorist analyst governor coleman. nbc is reporting now the interrogation behind the worldwide terrorist alert this week was an intercepted communication between the leader an of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula and the leader of al qaeda central over in pakistan. the man who succeeded osama bin laden zawahiri. the two men reportedly agreed that they wanted to do something big. timed to the end of the muslim holy month of ramadan which is right now. and that's what led the united states to close 19 embassies. there they are on the map and consulates in the mideast and africa. there's still a lot that remains unknown including which target. over the weekend, one thing clear from every lawmaker and official with knowledge of the attack, nobo
ronald reagan. so i guess it's the reagan fault. and it was expanded under president george w. bush. so i guess it's a bush phone too. the same program also helps provide internet access to rural areas and to schools and libraries. it's not funded by taxpayers at all. it's paid for by fees included in most phone bills. another republican fake scandal bites the dust. >>> finally tonight, i want to pay tribute to civil rights lawyer julius chambers, who died on friday. mr. chambers was a brilliant legal mind and an unsung hero in the fight for equality in education. 1971, his victory in a crucial supreme court case led to the full integration of the school system in charlotte, north carolina. mr. chambers' activism brought danger. his home and car were bombed. his law office and his father's store were burned down, but he never gave up. he argued eight cases on discrimination before the supreme court. he won every one of them. mr. chambers was 76 years old. we want to answer your questions. e-mail me, askrev@msnbc.com. remember are, friend or foe, i want to know. thanks for watching. i'm al
washington, d.c. governor, thanks for joining us. >> thanks, jonathan. >> so during the george w. bush administration, democrats accused the president of using, playing politics with the terror threats, especially during the 2004 re-election campaign. now president obama's republican critics are accusing him of using the terror warnings as a way to divert attention away from other issues, particularly the nsa leaks. are they right, or is the administration simply responding to threats that actually exist? >> well, i think the obama administration has a fair amount more credibility. the bush problem was this ridiculous orange, red, yell, orange, red, yellow and making a big deal about that every day, which the obama people properly abandoned. look, you have to react to what the intelligence is finding. the intelligence clearly gave a credible warning. if you don't react to that and you're the president of the united states, then the death of americans is on your shoulders. so of course he's going to react. of course he's going to close embassies if he feels they're at risk. the most rid
are never satisfied about anything. you make fun of george bush because he didn't listen to the chatter that was going on. because he didn't take it seriously, because he was offering a book. now president obama, let's go in syria or let's stay in afghanistan or let's go into iran. he's not saying that. he's just taking precautions. precautions. closing embassies. so what does that have to do with anything. >> stephanie: did i -- i'm confused. wait a minute. what? i've defended the nsa program. >> caller: not you. i'm sorry. those two men on there. god, the only reason -- listen to your show is because of you. if i had to listen to them, god, no. >> you should just take us out back like old yeller and put us out of our misery. >> caller: you should. >> stephanie: thank you. and good morning to you two. >> start your week. [ laughter ] >> there's nothing to worry about. >> stephanie: whiners, whiners. >> everything is completely fine. >> stephanie: i agree with melissa. pat in california. >> send you down the memory hole. >> caller: stephanie, i love you guys. you're the greatest but lis
. political director under president george w. bush as well as a cnbc contributor. the list is endless, sarah. good to see you. look, they're off on their holes. there doesn't appear to be an awful lot of time when they get back for the run of measures that they've got to squeeze in. what goes? >> well, you know, we keep seeing this same movie over and over with congress. you know, i would expect that as soon as they return, they will pass a continuing resolution to keep the government funded for a short period of time. and all attention will focus on these big three spending challenges. a long-term budget, the sequester which remains a challenge here in the united states, at least for many members of congress, and also the debt ceiling as you pointed out. so that is going to take up almost all of the oxygen in september. probably much of it in october as well. i think you'll see domestic priorities like immigration, patent reform, other topics that the congress has been focused on punted until, perhaps, november, december. if they have time to do them at all. >> we get a continuing resolutio
homeland security adviser to president george w. bush. she currently serves on the cia's external advisory board as well. we're talking about intercepting some sort of communication between the al qaeda leader and someone else, what does that mean? >> it's unlikely he would have sent an e-mail himself because that would have invited drone strike. it's more likely he'll use the technique that bin laden did, give a note to a courier on a thumb drive who would send it to yemen. >> fran, you're an expert on this subject. a sensitive subject. now that he and his top aides now the u.s. intercepted this communication between the al qaeda leader and someone else presumably al qaeda and the arabian peninsula, they suspect the u.s. has this capability and they're going to try to change their communications so this will undermine what the u.s. had, right? >> wolf, that's exactly right. which explains why u.s. government officials initially asked media outlets to please not report that it was a communication between them. those two individuals understand precisely how they communicated, whether it was
and human services from 2001 to 2005. he was appointed by president george w. bush. most recently for the record the governor joined the bipartisan policy center here as a senior adviser and we welcome him very much to the organization. governor, the budget when you took over in 2001 was about $380 billion is my record here. along with social security the was the largest and is the largest still today of the domestic agency. when you left at the end of 2004 it had grown $200 billion to over 580 billion-dollar agency. during your tenure you were hit with a slew of emergencies, anthrax, post 911, concerns over bioterrorism, the flu and the need to stockpile the smallpox vaccine. you also cleared up the plans to expand health insurance coveragn so when i look at your budget i know we are supposed to talk about constrained budgets but one might conclude you had no budget constraints on your agency but omb and barry anderson gave you a budget tie line. how did you go about and did the congress and particularly place restraints under congressional a budget that you hadn't anticipated cl
's george w. bush. glen, it is great to have you here today. >> pleasure. >> i think back about your book, balance the economics of great powers from ancient rome to modern america. thousands of years of civilizations that have gotten into trouble. in detroit, people are wondering, do we have the same problems that crop up here? >> we are. we can fix them. basically what happens to a great power when it stumbles, its politics don't keep up with economics. it was true in rome and china, otoman empire. true today, our problem is the debt crisis. >> the debt crisis and some people would say entitlements. you have to look at that. republicans are saying that. >> at the federal level. itself the core of it. the nation is on an unsustainable path. with key fix this. we request get our mojo back, growth back, tomorrow, not today. >> what do we have to do? >> we need to get on a glide path to slow entitlement programs and bring down government spending and debt overtime. with decan do it in a way that's aggressive or gradual. we have to start now. >> i look at what was happening in detroit. is th
